I'm taking a Saturday morning walk with my husband Chris and dog Ollie in Redwood City. We have things to do and places to go: we have to stop for cafe au lait at our favorite bistro, Pamplemousse; we'll stroll through the Farmers Market and pick up lunch; and we have to let Ollie run free in front of the high school..oh, and while we're at it, we'll peek into the historical old courthouse next to the market.
We'll take the "route du petit ecolier" as we wander around, checking out all the interesting and beautiful places we pass on our walk to and from the center of town..that's what Saturday's are for!
First, what to wear? It's sunny, so knee length
bermuda shorts, a nautical-stripe T with a red sweater,
and my new linen & leather Merrell's..so chic!
Don't forget the Ray-Bans!
